Long-time Jazz on the Tube subscribers know we have been dedicated advocates to the idea that arranger/composer/music director/ amplified guitar pioneer/trombone virtuoso Eddie Durham deserves a much higher profile among jazz fans and jazz students than his memory currently enjoys.
It’s time that he be placed at the level of Duke Ellington and other ESSENTIAL masters of the art.
As an important step in that direction, we’re delighted to announce a MAJOR documentary on Eddie’s life and music that launches tomorrow February 1, 2024.
Details and an informative wide-ranging interview.
Watch the interview above, and for more info on the documentary, click this link.
